    In the time of the Pharaoh, a tiny infant is rescued from the banks of the Red Sea. She is named Zipporah, "the little bird". Although she is a Cushite by birth, one of the black people of the lands to the south, she is taken in by Jethro, high priest and sage of the Midianites. Jethro adores his adopted daughter, and she is an honored member of his family. But the blackness of Zipporah's skin sets her apart and will decide her future.

    Overall

    I listened to the sample of this book and thought it would be a great opportunity to learn more about Zipporah the wife of Moses. I was surprised to learn that this is not a biblical account of Zipporah's life at all. I was disappointed since I found it in the religion and inspiration category of Audible books.
    This author depicts Zipporah as the adopted daughter of Jethro she is a stubborn and controlling woman that gives birth to both of Moses sons outside of marriage without shame. Jethro is a strong and wise leader in the bible but is depicted as a simpleton that drinks too much and allows his daughters too many liberties in him home for that time period. Be warned there are sex scenes which may appear slightly graphic for a Christian read but they are very tastefully depicted. If you like fiction then this is an ok read but if you are looking for a true accounting of Zipporah's life this listener suggest that you stick with the bibles account for now and continue your search for a true accounting of this amazing woman that no doubt had to endure many things being black and the wife of Moses.
